Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Extra halyard???

Hi Duane. The previous owner thought it was standard equipment and was surprised when I asked him why it was there. He was the second owner and when I went to Amel to find out what it was for, they said they didn’t know or care, they just put it there at the original owners request.
All The best, Joel

Duane, It sounds like you're describing the topping lift for the downwind poles, although it's hard to picture the "line around the lower spreaders" in your description. Do you have/use a ballooner? Craig
I have an odd halyard that goes up to the first spreader. The previous owner had looped some heavy line around the lower spreaders and hung a block from it which has a halyard in it.
I don't know the reason for it. #477 came stock with a 3rd main mast halyard (top of mast) for the gennaker (original equipment, it's in the Amel book). The third main mast halyard would be fine for raising a dinghy so why the odd additional halyard at the spreader?
